Performing preventative cleaning is such an important part of our defense against this pandemic that we are facing here in Dallas County. Social distancing, staying at home, and performing cleaning are helping to reduce the impact of this virus.

Higher Demand for Cleaning Services 

Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) provide valuable information about cleaning and disinfecting chemicals and the proper techniques about applying them. Even though the public can do a fine job of preventative cleaning, many companies are now turning to professionals for assistance. Why? Because companies like SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County have experienced technicians who have access to hospital-grade cleaning products and commercial equipment. Industrial equipment does a more efficient job with the application of disinfectants.

Businesses, commercial properties, and government facilities have also realized that by hiring a professional cleaning company, they are allowing their staff to continue with their routine work. They are also aware of the positive statement they are making to their employees, customers and the public about their level of care and concern.

Do You Know the Best Way to Remove Water from Your Dallas Home?

Water Damage Experts in Dallas Discuss Different Techniques Used During Restoration

Any time moisture finds its way into your Dallas home various types of problems can exist. During most water damage restoration projects several different types of materials inside your building can get wet. Porous materials such as carpets and fabrics soak water up easier but they dry more quickly once they are wet. Non-porous materials repel water well, but once they do get affected, it can be difficult to dry them out. Whenever you notice water damage inside your residence, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO that has access to the industry's most advanced technology.
 
In some situations, certain things that get wet may require specialty drying equipment and different techniques to get dry. When our SERVPRO technicians mitigate any water damage project in Dallas, we use a combination of our training and experience to figure out the best way to remove moisture from your contents and building materials as quickly as possible. For example, we use different methods if we are trying to dry out thin carpet that was just a little damp, then we use removing moisture from a thick carpet that got heavily saturated. We can also use equipment that is made for specific situations such as drying mats for wet hardwood floors.
 
One advantage we have at SERVPRO is that our team is highly trained. All of our technicians are IICRC certified in various restoration certification programs. Our crew constantly goes through on-the-job and classroom training so that we get better at dealing with a large variety of water loss scenarios. We use the combination of our experience with different issues and the things we have learned in our training classes to determine the best way to go about mitigating each project.

SERVPRO Can Provide Water Damage Services to Homeowners in Dallas

Even if you do not live in a flood zone, Dallas is prone to different types of water damage including backed up or burst pipes. If the excess water contains sewage, it can contaminate the area with dangerous bacteria. The water can also penetrate cabinets and spaces beneath them, causing damage to the wood and particle board, as well as hazardous mold growth.

When water damage threatens your Dallas home, there is no time to waste. You need to contact SERVPRO at once to prevent additional damage and possibly, mold damage. We have a wide range of equipment for different types of restoration jobs, and our technicians are IICRC certified to ensure a smooth cleanup process.

The water removal process begins with a thorough inspection of your property, including a water damage assessment. SERVPRO technicians determine the scope of the damage to develop a proper plan of action. Being cautious and careful is also a priority, in addition to making sure sockets, appliances, and electrical items are not a hazard.

Our technicians check for the water source in your home and then stop it before commencing the drying process. However, we have to identify the category of water damage to restore your property safely to its original state. The type of water contamination affects the specific restoration process used to reverse the water damage. The main ones include clean, black, and gray water damage.

After inspecting your home for the extent of the water damage, SERVPRO professionals look for safety concerns and describe them to you. We then proceed to move furniture and other contents before blocking items to prevent rust or stains on the wet carpet. The water extraction process involves removing most of the water from your property. This step is important to avoid mold and secondary water damage. During this time, we use powerful vacuum units and pumps to quickly remove numerous gallons of water from your property.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

As soon as we arrive at an emergency call, we immediately assess the situation and come up with a plan and initial scope based on the opinion of our expert team. Depending on each unique scenario, we change our techniques and the equipment we use to do the best job possible. If you ever notice water where it shouldn't be inside your house, call SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800 24 hours a day.

What Water Extraction Equipment Does SERVPRO Use for Flood Damage in Dallas?

4/15/2020 (Permalink)

Truck-Mounted Pumps Extract Water from Flood Damaged Dallas Homes

When your home in Dallas or the surrounding area falls victim to flooding, your first concern after making sure everyone is safe is getting your home back into a livable condition. You need someone who can get all of the work done quickly and competently. Anything less can leave aspects of your home in a less-than-acceptable state, and possibly put your family at risk of unwanted health effects.
 
Why SERVPRO takes the mitigation of flooded homes in Dallas so seriously is that flood extraction teams must know how to use the equipment and in the order in which they must carry out the work. Extracting floodwater from your property is a crucial step toward complete mitigation and restoration. Without it, nothing else can happen, and your family continues needing substitute lodging.
 
SERVPRO flood extraction technicians begin with our Green Fleet's truck-mounted pump to remove standing water. Your flooded home can still contain several inches of water upon your initial inspection. Getting this removed by pumping it out instead of allowing it to drain off by itself can save a significant portion of time and help make the rest of our mitigation work more effective.
 
When SERVPRO works on a flooded home, our goal is to remove all traces of floodwater from the property and get things prepared for successful restoration. Our work during flood extraction jobs includes the removal of interior structures that became destroyed during prolonged contact with water. Walls made of drywall and paneling, as well as many older types of stucco, carpeting and its padding – these all require removal from the property followed by the installation of replacement materials.
 
We eliminate all the dampness flooding caused as part of our flood extraction work, making the interior of your home safe for these new materials. Otherwise, water damage and microbial infestation could occur rather quickly. Elimination of these materials also removes a sizable percentage of unwanted moisture from the property.
 
To dry a home after a flooding event, we use highly efficient air movers. These change the air several times in a short period and quickly draw moisture out of damp, but as-of-yet undamaged, materials, effectively preventing their destruction. SERVPRO specialists also use air scrubbers to minimize dust, pollen, and microbes in the air. Removing these can make the air healthier to breathe, both while we work and for when your family returns home upon completion of mitigation and restoration efforts.
 
SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County works in Seagoville, Wilmer, and Lancaster, as well, providing timely flood extraction services to families and business owners in need of drying services. Call us at (972) 227-0800 when your property suffers a flooding disaster.

What’s Really Happening With Water Damage Remediation in Dallas

Tailoring Water Removal to the Unique Situation of Each Dallas Resident

Water extraction techniques vary depending on the scale of the task at hand. The individual area technicians are working on restoring also influences the method. Most people are familiar with traditional extraction methods using submersible gas pumps or truck-mounted storage tanks fitted with specialist wands. However, these are not the only options available to a restorer or homeowner. Sometimes pumping and extractors may be inefficient or otherwise not suitable to the task at hand. In these circumstances, homeowners can rely on us to mobilize modern drying methods to get the job done. 

Many factors can influence our approach when it comes to water removal in Dallas. Your home, furnishings, and contents are unlike any other, so it stands to reason that any restoration approach needs tailoring to the specific demands of each situation. The waterlogged living room, for example, may have lots of heavy furniture as well as fittings, which can make the traditional method unsuitable. These rules apply to any area of your home, which is why SERVPRO technicians inspect a property thoroughly before deciding on a plan.

A traditional method of drying may be to remove carpeting from floors so that we can gain direct access to the waterlogged area underneath. However, detaching carpeting may be more time-consuming than leaving it in place. In-place drying involves moving furniture in its original position and using extractors to dry the outer areas first- which can stop water migration. We can then use weighted extractors to exert a downward force onto a wet carpet and squeeze the moisture out. 

Consider a flooded kitchen or bathroom area. You may find that flooring like vinyl, tiling, or woods are expensive and time-consuming to remove and replace. In these situations, SERVPRO technicians can deploy drying mats. Drying mats cover a large surface area and are fitted with medical grade tubing. Attached to a central motor that generates negative air pressure, hundreds of these tubes work together to draw moisture out from solid surfaces without a technician needing to use invasive action to gain access. 

Every home is different. Our approach is to treat each home as a unique challenge. For a restoration that tailors to you, contact SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800.

Flood Damage In Dallas Homes

12/15/2019 (Permalink)

Hardwood Floors Are Not Necessarily a Loss After Flood Damage in Dallas Homes

One look at the flood damage in a home and the feeling of loss and the anxiety at needing to arrange for cleanup hits local homeowners in Dallas hard. The key to lessening loss is getting the water removed, and the property dried as fast as possible, particularly in the case of hardwood flooring.

Dallas homes with flood damage get immediate assistance from SERVPRO technicians. Being local, the technicians arrive rapidly after the initial call with a green service van loaded with all the equipment they need. If the power is out, no problem, they have generators, so there are no delays on cleanup.

Why SERVPRO?
Since bad weather does not take weekends or holidays off, neither do the certified technicians. They are available 24/7 to answer the needs of local property owners for any size storm damage, fire, or mold cleanup needed. The goal of the technicians is to lessen loss through their advanced restoration methods, especially for investments such as hardwood flooring.

Professional Equipment Makes the Difference
When dealing with hardwood floorings saturated by water, the technicians extract as much as possible using squeegee attachments on their portable pumps and doing several passes. When the drying phase of mitigation happens, SERVPRO techs use specialized drying equipment such as drying mats to force warm, dry air into the flooring to ensure the boards dry evenly.

Because the nature of wood is to swell when wet, the boards tend to cup and warp. During the drying process, the mats get carefully rotated to assist the boards in laying flat while drying. The technicians carefully monitor the moisture levels in the floorboards to be sure they are completely dry. In some cases, the boards may require slight sanding, staining, and the application of a sealant to restore them fully.

Why Help From SERVPRO Is Crucial After Flood Damage Affects Your Dallas Home

Once the anxiety that overcomes you during a flooding incident at your Dallas home subsides, you have to find a way to clean up and rebuild or take other steps that help restore it to its preloss state. It is rarely a smooth process, especially considering every flooding incident is unique. When you call us to offer professional assistance, our advanced training and experience help in many ways.

We Help With the Preparation
Restoring flood damage in your Dallas home requires a bit of preparation. Failure to address even simple issues can have severe implications. For example, working smoothly with your adjuster can help with your claim from the insurer. Our SERVPRO crew can inform you to prepare necessary documentation such as policy number and records of damaged items. We can also remind you of some crucial tips, such as asking for advanced payment from the insurer where necessary.

Record Keeping is Streamlined
Taking quick action is essential when dealing with flood damage because it stops further deterioration of building materials and contents. However, quick action may interfere with record keeping, which is another aspect of saving the property. Our SERVPRO technicians have better skills to document the loss properly. We take photos and record videos when performing different tasks, including pack-outs and demolition. For carpets or other large materials, we cut a piece and preserve it for the adjuster.

Handling the Dangers that Come with Flooding
Flood-damaged properties can be perilous, which is why local authorities provide guidelines for re-entry after significant incidents. Our SERVPRO technicians are certified in dealing with such hazardous areas. We have protective gear to protect us against contamination and electrical hazards, among other issues.

Protecting Property from Fire Damage in Dallas

Burnt and Fire Damaged Properties in Dallas Get Cleanup and Restoration from SERVPRO

Fires Large and Small Get Needed Restoration Services from SERVPRO

Anyone who has ever witnessed the results of a fire-damaged structure can testify that fire has no master. It can cause all sorts of damage, destroying numerous materials in the combustion process. Heat and smoke residues further enhance the damage. Sometimes even firefighters can contribute to some of the loss as they try to extinguish the fire with pressurized water cannons.
 
To save your property in a fire damage situation in Dallas, you need to contact a professional cleanup and restoration company immediately. SERVPRO has been in the fire damage restoration and cleanup industry for many years, and we have the equipment, skills, training, and technicians to protect your property and belongings.
 
To secure your property from the fire damage, SERVPRO technicians may have to move your belongings to a safe location. This procedure can be challenging, as it involves significant labor and several tasks. These tasks include packaging, moving, unpacking, cleaning, repackaging, and moving back. This pack-out service is utilized under severe fire damaging events or to preserve specific possessions.

Our specialists follow IICRC regulations and are highly efficient at fire damage restoration techniques. In some cases, it may also be necessary to vacate the primary residence during a move-out – for instance, when remodeling the property. It is much faster to remodel the house when no people are living in it. Excessive damage to the roof or flooring (basically any major part of the structure) may also necessitate moving out the family to a safer location.
 
Safety is our top priority during any fire damage event. Our restorers have been trained to maintain high levels of accuracy in their work. This meticulousness helps to avoid breakage and keep a proper inventory of your contents.
 
SERVPRO also understands that a move-out is not always necessary. Once our emergency team arrives on the site of the fire damage, they can use their professional judgment to make a decision. Transferring property can be costly, so we try to minimize the number of move-outs as much as possible. In most incidents, we can clean and restore the property while our customers are still in residence.

Do not let your valuable items go up in flames when disaster strikes. SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County has experienced specialists who can mitigate your property from the fire damage. Call us today at (972) 227-0800.

Decreasing Your Home's Risk of Developing Mold Damage in Dallas

3/7/2019 (Permalink)

You can find mold lurking behind furniture and cabinets or it can appear in plain sight. Regardless of how you find it, call SERVPRO immediately.

SERVPRO Technicians Investigate the Cause of a Mold Infestation Before and During the Remediation Process

While microbes exist everywhere, their overgrowth can cause problems. Homeowners in Dallas can protect their property from microbial overgrowth by taking precautionary steps. Prevention is much less expensive and consumes significantly less time than waiting and needing mold remediation services.

Dallas residents can prevent mold damage from affecting their homes. Simple things, such as wiping up spills, fixing water lines that drip, and installing a dehumidifier can help keep a home dry. You can gain a considerable amount of control over any mold by keeping the level of humidity inside your home at reasonable levels. Some houses require more intensive ways to ensure its protection.

While drips that land on your kitchen and bathroom floors can lead to mold damage, these fail to compare to the amount of water that comes from a broken pipe or an overflowing toilet. However, microbes do not need much water to spread and grow their vast colonies - only a tiny amount of moisture allows an enormous amount of mold to grow.

Controlling the amount of humidity in your home by responding promptly to water line breaks and loose shingles covering your home might seem costly. Waiting to remediate mold after it grows but before it causes damage to your home can set many homeowners back financially. Even worse, the costs involved in repairing mold damage can include non-monetary losses, including the destruction of irreplaceable memorabilia.

When substantial repairs become necessary to ensure your home remains free of mold damage, looking at the cost-effectiveness often reveals that paying for 'costly' repairs brings more benefits than expected. New portions of the roof reinforce weaker areas that harsh weather, high winds, and other elements affected more severely than other areas. Broken water pipes rarely give residents an option if they want to continue living in their home – homeowners must repair them. Drying out the home according to approved standards protects a home from mold damage.
 
The professional technicians of SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County can assist with any amount of mold damage in your home. Call us at (972) 227-0800, so we can help you protect your family and home from unnecessary microbial growth. We can answer your questions, provide you with pertinent information, and assess your home's unique situation, so you fully understand your options.

Speed is King  

One of the reasons why individuals and ill-equipped teams fail to prevent as much damage as SERVPRO technicians do during a water removal project in a Dallas home is that they cannot match the speed at which we operate. Within four hours of your initial call to us, we should have crews on the site beginning to remove water from your home. Our top priority is to remove any standing water from the home, a process that is typically only necessary after flooding or other large disasters. After that, we set up advanced drying solutions such as air movers and dehumidifiers to pick up any remaining water in the home, even droplets that have worked their way deep into the wood and other materials.  

...but Not At The Expense of Being Thorough  

We never allow our emphasis on speedy work to impact our ability to deliver a complete and thorough service. SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified to provide industry-leading services and are equipped with the best tools money can buy to ensure that they complete every job as thoroughly as possible. Our goal is to eliminate all potential sources of damage before we leave and reduce your home's risk of incurring damage in the future from other sources, as well.
